This is a snippet from our Jenkins shared library which is currently closed source.
It assumes that BrowserStackLocal is installed in /opt directory and that the BrowserStack access key is available via environment variable BROWSERSTACK_ACCESSKEY.
In addition, in order to limit the parallel jobs that can use BrowserStack due to billing issue I use Lockable Resources Plugin.
